      Hi, Cinderella and thank you.

      I am happy that this article helps you to start using a treadmill.  Like about all things there is pros and cons so it is important to find out what works for you.
      But it can too be good to mix things, sometimes run outside and sometimes on a treadmill. For example in the winter time.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Interesting read. Although I do have a question for you in regards to running surface. I enjoy running outside but I find running on road asphalt seems to provide more cushioning than a concrete footpath. Is it just me or is that a fact? I also get a sore back from running on occasion, any tips?

      Hi, Nigel Robinson and thank you.

      People get a different feeling about the asphalt. Personally, I like footpath more but I know a lot of people which have the same feeling as you have. I think a big part of it is where you come from. In hot countries is it softer than in cold, for example.
      Too, the treadmills are different too. So there are many factors which come in that issue.
      But about the sore back from running on occasion, run in comfortable shoes if you don´t. Plus do not be in ankle socks, be in higher compression running socks. It should help a lot, in fact, it is very important when you run outside.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    I am looking to do some treadmill work on top of my regular weightlifting routine in hopes of helping me burn more calories and lose weight a little bit faster.

    Would light running for 10 or 15 minutes do the trick for me? I am usually pressed for time before I go to work.

      Hi, jessie palaypay and thank you.

      Yes, you can. I used it in the gym to warm up before the weight lifting.  It has been proved that if you use so-called HIT training (high-intensity training), you don´t need so much time to feel the difference. For example, using the Tabata system and run on full power in 20 seconds and slow in 10 show a good process.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Great read! I just have a quick question in regard to running on a treadmill vs. running outside… I know the treadmill isn’t great for the knees, but my back seems to handle it better. When I run outside my back hurts… Do you think there is a difference?

    Just wondering if maybe there are other people that have the same issue…

      Hi, Jason and thank you.

      The point is that persons are so different about this things. So that it the way I stress that you consult your doctor if you have a problem. For example, I had in many years difficult to run on treadmills because of my back. But later I found out that it seems to be so much difference between brands that I can run on some but not others. I have talked about it with my physiotherapist and it seems to be the case, the difference between the treadmills.

    I am in my senior years now but have an interest in getting a treadmill for just walking to keep my weight down and regulated along with getting some exercise.

    Do you have any suggestions you could make for someone like me?  I am not a big person so my guess is something smaller would work best as far as size of a treadmill.  Also, I live in town so walking here is not advised and I think this would be an ideal way for me to get exercise along with some cardio workout.  Am I right here?

    Thanks for any suggestions you can possibly give me.

    Susan

      Hi, Susan and thank you.

      Good idea. Too many forgot that treadmills are good for walking also. And too, that walking is an excellent exercise.

      I wrote an article about the best home treadmills. And will update it regularly if better items come. You can see it here.

      Have a look at the Gold’s Gym Trainer 720 which I choose as the best one. You can see a review of it here.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.
